by Dr. Natalia Berger

Jews and Medicine examines the special relationship between Jews and medicine both intrinsically, from within, and historically, from without. Two questions were posed: first, does Judaism in itself foster a special attitude toward medicine, and secondly, to what extent did life in the Diaspora influence the Jewish contribution to medicine? The book chronologically traces the most significant points of encounter between the history of the Jewish people and the history of medicine, beginning with the Bible and ending with the modern world and the State of Israel. This beautiful book is a unique combination of information and artifact, history and philosophy, and is a perfect gift for any doctor, rabbi, or anyone else interested in the long and noble relationship between Jews and medicine.
